Trey Pollard – “8 Pairs: Fugue VI. Very Slowly” – ‘Antiphone’ out Nov. 16

Today, Trey Pollard announces that his debut album Antiphone will be out November 16 and releases the first track, “8 Pairs: Fugue VI. Very Slowly.” “This is the pretty one,” says Pollard about “Fugue VI.” “You can only control some aspects of a work’s character; the form and maybe the initial melodic and harmonic content. But eventually it reveals itself and you just submit and help it become what it wants to be. In this case, it wanted to be pretty.”

Producer Matthew E. White says:

“Trey Pollard’s art is inviting, challenging, tough, graceful, easy, and stubborn. It is art that can reveal, and art that can obscure. It is music too, and music can be for many things, but this is, certainly, music for listening.”

Antiphone features a set of preludes and fugues for string quintet (“8 Pairs”) and pieces for chamber string orchestra and piano (“Fixed Ideas”).

Catch Trey Pollard live with a string quintet, performing pieces from Antiphone:

Nov 13 – Richmond VA – The Hofheimer (Classical Revolution)
Nov 15 – Brooklyn NY – Rough Trade NYC (In-store performance)

Jackie Cohen – “Tacoma Night Terror”

Jackie Cohen returns with “Tacoma Night Terror,” the title track to her second EP, Tacoma Night Terror Part 2: Self-Fulfilling Elegy, which will be out October 12th.

I had the blues but now I’ve gone a bit green. Worried. Can’t sleep. What do you think it is? Probably nothing. Neck looks swollen. Does my neck look really swollen to you? Hand’s numb, too. Left one. The death one. You know, I did see Death about an hour ago, waving at me from an apartment window across the way. Maybe let’s say our goodbyes now, just in case?

The second head of Cohen’s two-part Siamese twin Tacoma Night Terror EP set, the gloriously-titled Self-Fulfilling Elegy, at once declares itself the cocky counter-peak to the previous release’s valley of gloomy, anxiety-fueled observations. It opens with the big, Hunky Dory strut of “Make U Sick,” all hutzpah and hot-head swagger and hopped-up disregard for proper spelling. But it’s only the high before the low. By the time we land on torch song “It’s Raining Again,” the moxie has burned off and Cohen’s once again bedridden and reaching for the mirtazapine. The whistles and moans of mental health across this set of songs are bold and often hilariously garlanded. In the brilliant closing song, “I Hate My Body,” Cohen turns her body dysmorphia and pathological clenching (“My eyes feel like chestnuts on a fire/My back is all busted up/My BPM’s way up/My shit is aching”) into a big, dazzling Rockette’s Spectacular high-kicking finale that alone is worth the price of admission.

Resound – “I Will Always Love You”

Today, on what would have been Whitney Houston’s 55th birthday, Resound release their a cappella take on “I Will Always Love You.” A seemingly effortless exploration of unison and harmony and a fresh take on an absolute classic song, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts in that distinct Resound way.

“To sing a fresh version of ‘I Will Always Love You’ is, to put it bluntly, an almost impossible task,” producer Matthew E. White says. “A song made famous twice by two of America’s greatest female icons, it has topped the charts four times in four different decades. Cutting across time, genres, and cultures, it is as ubiquitous a song as the first century of recorded music has given.”

White continues:

“That said, Resound being Resound, I’m not sure they had any of this in mind when they decided to sing it. They are, seemingly without knowing it, one of the most stunning a cappella trios of our time. Their casualness (millions of YouTube views of Resound, filmed by an iPhone, sitting on their couch, knocking out one a cappella arrangement after another are a revelation) is a thin disguise for their effortlessness and, as in all crafts, it is this pure effortlessness that captures the imagination most. Despite the looming shadow of a song that is a pure definition of Popular music, Resound manages – quite easily – to outpace its shade. They have taken something we all know inside and out and have found a new side of its shape.”

Resound say about the song and their interpretation of it:

“We’ve always been huge Whitney fans. The way that she captured so much musicality and emotion in this one song has made it timeless. It felt like a no brainer for us to try to recapture that same feeling in our own way. We hope that it moves others just like it moved us years ago.”
